Sony says the focus takes 0.6 seconds in the A6000. Nikon has said nothing. Do they need to?

It's really meaningless. Unless you are a kiddie-type and you need to know that your Chevy is 1 second faster from 0 to 60 than your friend's Ford.

While I agree with others who say that V3 is waaay overpriced, the AF system on N1 cameras is the best in the MILC world. It is not only about speed, but also about flexibility. What's the point of A6000's fast AF-C, if you can't choose what to focus on? Usually the photog want's to determine exactly where to focus. You can't do that with the A6000, but you can with the V1/2/3, and there are plenty of AF points to choose from.

Now I've seen (you?) say this before I'm curious why. I freely admit to not being fully aware of the Nikon v1,2,3 but what focusing selection do you want that you can't get on the a6000? I've seen eye, face, selective spot (three sizes), AF-a, and the lock on where the shape adjusts. The only other option I'm aware of that a6000 doesn't have would be touch screen which may or may not be a limitation to some users.

Yes true. But my NEX-5r has a touch screen for touch-AF and also touch-shutter. And the processor and sensor is the same as an A6's. Which is nearly as fast as the A6000's. Because I already own a Nikon 1, I am set up to choose between the two cameras based on need. The BEST combination lready...no need for a V3.


PS the amazing thing with any N1 is that it never fails you...99% keepers.
